2015 October Horror Challenge #58 "R.L. Stine's Mostly Ghostly"
I'm digging all these R.L. Stine inspired Halloween movies. When I was a kid 2e didn't have nearly enough horror/monster/Halloween related stuff aimed at kids, and now thanks to Netflix and other streaming sites, we have tons of them to choose from. I love it!
This story is about an unpopular preteen kid who is interested in magic and the supernatural, and he unwittingly summons a real ghost one night and then has to figure out what to do. I was an unpopular kid interested in magic and the supernatural, so I can relate. I would have been stoked to summon a real ghost when I was a kid. This movie is a lot of fun without being too scary or too gory, so it's the perfect flick to help get littler kids interested in this horrific habit of ours.
